Wausau/Stevens Point/Marshfield

Harry Deets, MSW, LCSW, ACSW

Hello.  I am the Location Leader for ERC's Wausau, Marshfield, and Stevens Point offices.  My training includes an MSW degree from Loyola University of Chicago.  I also completed specialized post-graduate training in marriage and family therapy.  Most clients find me fairly easy to converse with and feel that I am a good listener.  I also have a good sense of humor and this helps clients to relax in our work together.  I normally like to include other family members when indicated to address relationship and mental health issues.  I particularly enjoy working with couples.  Other clinical areas of interest include family therapy, grief and loss, depression and anxiety, stress, faith issues, and work related problems.  I am also trained in EMDR therapy, which is an approved treatment for trauma.  In 2013, I completed a certificate program in coaching and enjoy working with leaders on work and career related concerns.

Lois Swanson, M.Div.,MSW,CAPSW

Most of us, when we are facing difficulties or trying to bring about change in our lives, do better with some outside assistance.  I believe that you are the expert on your own life. My job as a counselor is to use my knowledge, skills and experience to support and challenge you to find more useful ways to navigate in your world. I have 27+ years of experience working with individuals, couples and families in a variety of settings. My training includes a Master of Divinity degree from McCormick Theological Seminary and a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Minnesota, as well as specialized training in Family Systems Theory. Some special areas of interest for me are marriage and partner relationships, parenting, workplace issues, depression, anxiety, grief/loss, life transitions, spirituality/faith issues, and effective leadership for managing change.

I hold a bachelor's degree in psychology and a master's degree in mental health community counseling. I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families in both individual and group settings. My experience ranges from a community clinic, corrections-based setting, and substance abuse clinic. Other areas of interest include: anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, anger management, family conflict, parenting, trauma, and grief.

I believe in cognitive-behavioral, supportive, strengths-based, solution-focused, and dialectical therapy models. I also believe that my experiences and values have made me into an open-minded, nonjudgmental, and culturally aware counselor.
